Overview

Formerly a private mansion and studio built in the 19th century, the Museum is dedicated to the work of Jean-Jacques Henner considered at the beginning of the 20th century to be one of the most important painters of his time. Its display follows the chronological itinerary of this artist from his native Alsace to Paris, where he settled, and Italy after receiving the Prix de Rome. The numerous works from the artist's studio reveal the working methods of an "official" painter of the Impressionist period.

We enjoyed visiting this museum that held a collection of Impressionist paintings by Jean Jacques Henner. We had not been familiar with the artist but liked getting to know his work and visiting his studio.

Excellent small museum in the former residence of the artist. Interesting and thought provoking works. He really has a thing for redheads.
